Pett's Commentary on the BiblePett's Commentary

- Luke

by Peter Pett

Chapter 3. The Ministry of John and the Genealogy of Jesus.

This chapter is split into two sections. The first describes the powerful ministry of John. The second introduces the Coming One in terms of the pouring out of the Holy Spirit on Him, together with a genealogy linking Him with David, with Abraham, with Adam, and with God.

The passage is a mixture of Aramaic influence and solid Lucan phraseology, which we might expect from information received in Aramaic and taken by Luke and represented in Greek.
